    Optima 6V discontinued!

    Delco makes a very good 6 Volt Battery for the money. Terry Wiegand South Hutchinson, Kansas

    New Engine

    Based on the frame number it was at one time a 1917 D-45. The frame number was assigned from lot numbers 257717 - 276726. If it was a 1916 engine it would have had grease cups on the rocker arm posts. Terry Wiegand South Hutchinson, Kansas

    Serial number tag location needed for 1918 K-45

    And on the other end of this situation, if the car was built near the very end of the model production run and did not sell until after the start of the new year, some states would have titled it as a 1919. Things like that happened more than one would realize. Terry Wiegand South Hutchinson, Kansas

    Teens Engine and Frame Number Help

    The frame number falls into one of the lot numbers that were issued to the 1917 models. It does line up with a 6-cylinder model. Terry Wiegand Out in HOT Doo Dah

    1928 Buick tire cover

    I know that you were wondering about the light colored canvass material for the spare tire cover - several variations are shown here. Just for the halibut, here is what I did with the spare on our 1920 Buick Coupe. I wanted something that was going to promote the dealer in our area at the time the car would have been new. After doing some digging in old city directories and phone books, the earliest mention of a Buick Dealership in our town is around 1907. We are in farm country and things generally are a little bit slower in reaching us out in Doo Dah. I had the fellow who put the new top on our 1916 Touring use some of the left over material for this cover. The material is called Haartz Stayfast. I had the lettering embroidered before it was sewn up. For some reason the color in the lettering doesn't show the true Orange like it really is - but you get the idea. Hope this might give you some ideas about what can be done. Terry Wiegand Out in Doo Dah

    1926 Ajax

    The car has a high-dollar for the time, aftermarket taillight on it. I have one of those on my 1922 Buick. Terry Wiegand South Hutchinson, Kansas

    When Did Buick start using a locking ignition switch?

    My 1920 K-46 (4-Passenger Coupe) has a keyed ignition lock plus a keyed locking passenger side door. Terry Wiegand South Hutchinson, Kansas

    Valve springs for E 6 cylinder engine (1918)

    Here is a photo of the brass sealing rings for the exhaust cages. It seems that I misspoke in saying that I had 6 of them. There are 8 of them and once these are gone I do not think that I will do any more of them. First person that comes up with $125.00 (that will include the postage) will have them on the way to their mailbox. These rings are for the exhaust cages and will work on all models thru the 1923's.

    Valve springs for E 6 cylinder engine (1918)

    Be careful with the spring pressures. The cages are gray cast iron without a hardened seat. The pushrods are the weak link in the valve train. Spring pressures that are too high can and will cause a lot of other problems. Terry Wiegand South Hutchinson, Kansas

    Help to identify the car I just received

    Simnut, Hugh gave you a good list of a lot of things that were unique to the 1923 6-Cylinder models. We cannot forget that the 1923 models were the last year for the caged-valve engine. 1924 being the first year for a removable cylinder head on the 6-Cylinder engine. 1923 was also the last year for the 2-wheel brakes. If you need copies of the 1923 sales brochure I can help you out with that. When it comes to the ignition system on your car, you are very fortunate that the 1923 models used a single piece molded distributor cap which is relatively easy to find. Like the others have told you, you have found the right place where early Buick enthusiasts from all over the world are willing to help you with good solid technical advice and lots of encouragement. Welcome to the fascinating world of early Buick automobiles and trucks. Terry Wiegand South Hutchinson, Kansas

    Rocker arm play Buick E-49

    Here is a photo of some wave washers. There are two of them stuck together that are standing upright. They are .750" on the Outside Diameter and they are .445" on the Inside Diameter. I bought a box of them (100 per box) from McMaster-Carr when I rebuilt the valve train on my 1916. The part number for the washers is - T-124515-1. This is what you can use ALONG with a thin flat washer to hold the arms up against the post. Terry Wiegand South Hutchinson, Kansas

    Rocker arm play Buick E-49

    Why don't you use a wave washer with the appropriate Inside Diameter and Outside Diameter? Use those with a thin washer on the cotter pin side. Terry Wiegand South Hutchinson, Kansas
